Dodgers fans who also enjoy the popular ABC reality TV show The Bachelorette are in for a treat this season. Not only do they get all of the drama and laughter that come with sticking dozens of men chasing after one woman, but they will get to see a former draft pick.
The Dodgers scooped up pitcher Conor Costello in the 32nd round of the 2016 draft out of Oklahoma State. Costello played for 2 years in the organization but was released following the 2017 season. It does not appear that he has played since that release from the Ogden Raptors.
Now, Costello is trying to impress Katie Thurston. The former Dodgers draft pick is going to have to go all out to impress, but he did earn a rose on the first night and move on to week 2. The Bachelorette is currently in it’s 17th season and episodes air every Monday.

The Dodgers might have an interesting trade chip on their hands as we approach the deadline. With all of their depth at the catching position, Los Angeles could potentially look to move top prospect Keibert Ruiz. That becomes a little easier with the emergence of Diego Cartaya at Low-A ball. But who would they look to trade for?
The good news for the Dodgers is that they might have one of the easiest schedules remaining in 2021. In looking at a compression to the rest of the league, Los Angeles ranks out as one of the weakest schedules as opposed to the Padres and Giants. That could spell good news as they look to keep the pace down the stretch.
